WWE Hall of Fame 2014: Ultimate Warrior headlines this year's class

The first inductee!

WWE.com

It was announced today (Jan. 13) that tickets for the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony on April 5, 2014, at the New Orleans Arena in New Orleans, Louisiana, just one night before the historic WrestleMania 30, will go on sale this coming Saturday night.

Now we know the headlining attraction for this year's class of inductees.

On tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw from Providence, Rhode Island, it was announced that Ultimate Warrior will be the headlining attraction as the first inductee.

This comes on the heels of the rumors -- that are now official news -- that he had signed a deal with WWE to be involved with the company in some capacity. It is expected he will have a new DVD released in April, right around the time of his induction.

From WWE.com:

"The Ultimate Warrior was the most intense, colorful, competitive and outspoken Superstar in sports-entertainment history, and his contributions to WWE were extraordinary," said WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon. "We are thrilled to induct The Ultimate Warrior into the WWE Hall of Fame."

When his trademark theme music hit, Warrior would burst out of the dressing room and sprint towards the ring, causing a frenzy of excitement amongst WWE fans. Inside the squared circle, Warrior was an intense competitor and responsible for many of the most memorable moments in WWE history.
